The InfinitiesBook - 2010
In his first novel since the Booker Prize-winning THE SEA, Banville gives readers a dazzling new book that chronicles both a human family and a rather unholy gathering of immortals. On a midsummer's day Old Adam Godley, a renowned theoretical mathematician, is dying. His family gathers at his bedside. As Adam's time on earth starts to run out, unearthly beings - Zeus, Hermes, Pan - start to stir up trouble, to sometimes unintended effect. This departure from Banville's last book is blissfully inventive and playful, rich in psychological insight and sensual detail.
